I've been to this museum a few times over the past several years, and it's always a pleasant and educational experience. The main focus of the museum is the Schneider house, a restored Mennonite home that dates back to 1816. There are also art and photography exhibits, and a folk artist in residence program. Knowledgeable staff in period costume are very helpful. I always learn something new, although I wish I didn't know about the corncobs in the outhouse.

This beautiful, old turn-of-the-century home is one of my favourite historic sites in Kitchener, Ontario. Touring each of the rooms, looking at the unique furniture, china displays, larder cupboards, wallpaper coverings, wonderful antiques, pot-bellied stoves,old framed photos, etc., I feel as though I have gone back in history and tasted another era...can almost imagine playing outdoors with the King Family children on the beautiful grounds surrounding this lovingly cared for homestead.

Amazing to see even with the homes built right up to the park! What a tribute to our pioneer past. Special thanks to my Godfather Reuben Oberholtzer for having this dream to build and enacting upon it and to my employer, Paul Kuntz, Bob Kuntz Sr and the Kuntz family who said Donna, we've got money to share with the Walter Bean Trail - Let's make this part happen!
